Theatricum Botanicum repertory member Gerald C. Rivers is powerful in his evocation of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. His one-man show, What Do You Dream Of?, runs one night at the theater on July 27, 8 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the Theatricum.
What Do You Dream Of? announces the advent of one of the greatest leaders of our time in this fundraiser for the theater, a one-man show performed one night only on July 27.
Seen through the eyes of an Ancient African Griot, Dreamawonde literally takes the audience on a mystical journey transcending time. Actor Gerald C. Rivers invokes the past, present and future as he transforms into the late great civil rights leader, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
For more than 30 years, Theatricum Botanicum company member Rivers has been performing his stunning and powerful Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. renditions to audiences of all nationalities and ages. Now he has put together a special compilation of Dr. Kings speeches and incredible character reflections. This show is designed to inspire, uplift and motivate audiences to live their own dream. Look at the power of what one man can do. What can you do? What Do You Dream Of?
The story speaks to our oneness, unity, peace, love and universal connection. The show is poignant, funny, touching, educational, informative, uplifting and truly inspiring. It is appropriate for all ages and includes the beauty and grace of a traditional Indian bellydancer, live speedpainting demonstration, the transformational sound of world music as well as original songs written especially for the show.
